EZA: Username list! Explain your username!

  • It's a character from Futurama. My real name sounds vaguely similar, and because I was/am a massive Futurama fan, when I was at uni people just started to call me Kif. Variations from friends and partners have been Kifster and Kiffy.

  • I'm a filthy weeb

  • Back in High School I read "Neuromancer" by William Gibson, I thought it was really cool that one of the book's protagonists shares a name with me (I won't say who). I went on to read the next book, "Count Zero", which introduced me to the concept of an internet handle, leading to me taking the Count_Zero handle (and CountZeroOr on boards where Count_Zero or CountZero is taken).

  • @Count_Zero is your real name "Lady 3Jane Marie-France Tessier-Ashpool" cause if so, that would be pretty sweet

  • Aside from crepes being delicious, and one of my favorite breakfast foods, I like to keep all my handles as short and sweet as possible.

  • I sent an email to EZA when they first started saying I liked what they were doing and would be happy to help if they needed it. Understandably, they didn't reply. So as an in-joke with myself type jab at myself, I called my self EZA intern. Side note, I'm not as lonely as that makes me sound.

  • @Kif Added! ...Kiffy. lol

    @Filthy-Weeb Added! How many anime tattoos do you have though

    @Count_Zero added! Mostly.

    @Crepe added! Short is a good way to though. I don't think I have ever eaten a crepe before. huh

    @E_Zed_Eh_Intern Added!...you okay bud

  • “I am Jack’s trigger and Fontaine’s tool, so Atlas can rise before Rapture becomes a fish tank” (Not an exact quote from the game BIOSHOCK)

    I've had my old username (DeweyDefeatsTruman) since I was in like, 10th grade, but I've never once liked it. Only stuck to it since at the time I couldn't think of anything better, I didn't like the idea of having different usernames everywhere I went, and after a certain point changing them all would have been a bit of a hassle (or outright impossible in the case of PSN, for example.) But the other day I finally just said "screw it" and honestly I'm glad I did. Hanabi has a nice ring to it I think. A lot shorter too so it isn't a mouthful.

  • At first I was wanted to use my name, Jillian, as a username. I thought it was boring to just put my name so I just added more letters and behold! It became Jillliann. It's pronounced like my name.

  • When I first started playing WoW I was looking for a good name for my gnome priest. At the time I had recently read a book with a gnome character ("Dragons of Autumn Twilight"), and I tried to recall her name - guessing, and ending up on Burup.

    I, of course, was wrong... the character's name was actually Bupu, but Burup has stuck lol

  • My nickname is Pepe and while working at a restaurant one of the owners would call me Pepe El Toro because I was built like a defensive tackle. 805 cause of the area code i live in.

    Later I found out Pepe el Toro is a Mexican sports drama film from 1953.

  • Love that there's a thread for this! :):)

    I started up my Youtube channel in 2013 and needed a channel name. Ended up taking each of my initials - R A R M - and throwing the word 'star' on the end. From that day on, RARMSTAR was born! :L

    It's kinda cool how the name has managed to stick around - I do a bunch of stuff with the teenagers/young people in the community where I live through my church and a lot of them know me as RARMSTAR or RARMY.

    (Ps: if you search RARMSTAR on the internet it asks if you meant 'Farmstar', a kind of tractor!)

  • kAb is a truncated version of my handle from all the way back in 2002. At the time I had just gotten into soul calibur 2 with kilik being my main character. I registered on the soulcalibur.com forums with the handle kilikAbeast.

    This name was a two headed monster for me. Kilik was my new obsession in calibur 2, but I was also concurrently playing final fantasy 10. If you recall, the blitzball team from kilika was the beasts. Hence kilikAbeast was born.

    I used that handle for some time but as I started to get more and more known in the calibur and tekken community people would always shorten it to kAb. It just kinda stuck from there.

  • My username jeweloflibra is very simply that my name is Amber which is a semi-precious jewel and I was born in October, hence I’m a Libra.

  • well... back in the day, when I had to chose my first username entering the new world of the internet... i chose the name from a character out of a tad williams novel from my book shelf in front of me and over time it just stuck with me.

  • I'm South Korean but when I met person I always tell them this as a my name. Shortened two A. and P. is my actual last names, but I don't wanna reveal it to anyone. Even for South Koreans.
    Origin of the name is simple and not simple short story. There was a white English teacher who call me a Todd, or Toad when I was a primary student. I really don't like how it sounds, but I didn't know how to change the situation, because I don't speak English that time. So I just simply change the place of 'D' and 'T'.

    Anyway, Nice to meet you. I'm Dott. Dott Winial.

  • I used to do chatroom roleplays back in the days of AOL and Mazer was one of them. I eventually had him become lead in a series of fantasy stories I wrote. 23 years later and it is still the name I use online.

  • Brisingr88 is a reference in the Eragon books and I was born in 1988.
